settings. The TBM 940 autothrottle can be set either automatically or manually and can be selected at any segment of the flight. Only the TBM 940 comes with an autothrottle.
When you disconnect to land, the aircraft will hand over to you a perfectly trimmed airplane for an easy nose high flare and landing.
The TBM 940 replaces the current TBM 930 as the flagship model in Daher’s TBM family. This site is protected by reCAPTCHA and the Google.
Your email address will not be published. As a result we’ve added an inner gear door to the TBM 940, which reduced turbulence and improves its aerodynamic efficiency.
Garmin G3000 avionics, an all-glass integrated avionics system with high-resolution displays and touchscreen controllers. This category only includes cookies that ensures basic functionalities and security features of the website. This gives improved lighting around the TBM 940 to enhance visibility of the TBM 940 by other aircraft in low-light conditions. To improve visibility at night, we added an additional light at the tip of the tail of the aircraft. Once only found in larger jets and airline aircraft, autothrottle provides a far more precise and efficient way of flying an aircraft. The autothrottle improves performance, safety and protects the engine.
The specified vertical path typically is computed between two waypoints, or an angle from a single way point.

The automatic de-icing system features a new preventive and redundant icing condition detection solution for ultimate protection. The overhead panel integrates a leather covered handle on the central frame of the windshield, while the stand-by compass has been integrated in the MD 302 digital Back up instrument.
Engine overhaul costs based on JSSI datas for turbines and estimated for jet engines. coordinated the TBM 940 carries itself through the sky. The TBM 940’s five-blade composite propeller has been designed by Hartzell Propeller specifically to improve the aircraft’s takeoff distance, climb and cruise speed. Once the mode is engaged by the pilot via the master control on the cockpit panel, each occupant can Based on Garmin’s Autoland system – and available as a part of the G3000 integrated flight deck – HomeSafe™ integrates weather, traffic and terrain information to select the optimum airport for landing, considering such conditions as fuel range, flight distance and runway length. Restyling on the TBM 940 begins with a refined cabin entrance that incorporates a new carbon fiber floor. You simply set the speed on the autothrottle and the airplane flies at that exact speed. choose whether to utilize the heating – and select either light or moderate heat
With the autothrottle and autopilot engaged on final approach, the aircraft will trim itself to the final approach speed. An amber CAS (Crew Alerting System) message is displayed by the avionics, advising the pilot to clear the automatic activation and revert to the manual control mode. The procedure is designed to help pilots fly a stabilized approach. In addition to reducing pilot workload, the autothrottle enables a TBM 940 to be operated to the edge of approved power regimes for its Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-66D turboprop engine, providing optimum performance and efficiency from the powerplant. * Windshield de-ice He holds commercial, single and multi-engine, instrument flight and ground instructor ratings, is an active pilot, instructor and aircraft owner. These electronic monitoring and stability augmentation systems assist the pilot in maintaining the aircraft in a stable flight condition when flight parameters are exceeded, Active cabin monitoring engages automatic descent to reach controllable environments for the pilot and its passengers. The autothrottle improves … He is married with two grown sons, two daughters-in-law and four grandchildren.
“The TBM 940 redefines the ultimate private aircraft: user-friendly, safe and efficient for both pilots and passengers,” said Nicolas Chabbert, Senior Vice President of the Daher Airplane Business Unit. This makes for a faster and more efficient trip with no exceedances, making a far lower workload for the pilot. The TBM 940 is the first turboprop equipped in the world with full auto-pilot integration. Allows passengers to enjoy a comfortable cockpit where the temperature Your email address will not be published. As pilots, we typically plan on speeds that we are either used to, or are taught would be safe speeds with less consideration for performance. * Inertial particle separator One key TBM 940 feature is its automated throttle, said to be the first ever installed on a standard production turboprop aircraft weighing less than 12,500 lb (5.7 metric tons). In automatic mode, you preprogram the speeds that you want for each segment of the flight. It was announced during the Safety Seminar meeting of the TBM Owners and Pilots Association (TBMOPA), held in Florida, USA. The improved flying characteristics and added safety are only the start.
When icing or ice accretion is detected – and if the pilot does not take action – the system is automatically activated for deicing of the airframe, windshield, propeller and the engine’s particle separator. Inside the TBM 940’s cabin, Daher has incorporated ergonomic and style upgrades that include redesigned seats, additional thermal insulation for the cabin sidewalls, a new central shelf with side storage, an additional 115V electrical outlet at the right rear seat panel, and USB ports (bringing the overall total of USB ports to six for passengers and three for the pilots).
This powerplant’s simple design offers easy maintenance, efficiency and low operational costs – and it is covered by one of the industry’s most extensive support networks. Elliott Jets has been selling new TBM’s since 2005.
The Autothrottle integrated system automates the engine power control and monitoring. With this advisory automatic ice protection systems, the pilot is assisted in detecting icing conditions or accumulation. He now has more than 18,000 hours of flight time.
The TBM is heading digital with a new compass : the removal of the whiskey compass brings more visibility outised the cockpit. If the airplane is pitched too low, the autopilot will engage and pull the nose up and the throttle will adjust to control speed. portalId: "3029182", This exclusive program gives the initial retail owner of a TBM complimentary scheduled maintenance – including annual inspections – for the first five years or 1,000 hours of operation with the aircraft. If the airplane approaches a stall, the USP will activate, pitch down, and the throttle will increase to maintain and hold altitude. It can be used with or without autopilot and in conjunction with many other features like ESP, OSP, USP, EDM, and AOA. This new feature provides assistance for visual approaches to non-controlled airports based on terrain and the classic 3-degree vertical path. New cupholder in the central armrest between the rear seats. Autothrottle The Autothrottle integrated system automates the engine power control and monitoring. Let’s get this out of the way up front: Both the TBM 910 and TBM 940 have e-Copilot (Garmin’s Electronic Stability and underspeed Protection [ESP], plus EDM), stick shaker, and automatic ice protection.
Autothrottle for the TBM 940 One key TBM 940 feature is its automated throttle, said to be the first ever installed on a standard production turboprop aircraft weighing less than 12,500 lb (5.7 metric tons). Every seat can now be heated with the heating function. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis of the airflow over the previous TBM airframe revealed a significant amount of turbulence in the area of the gear doors.
The TBM 940 autothrottle can be set either automatically or manually and can be selected at any segment of the flight. It also makes it so you cannot stall the airplane.

Landscape oriented for better integration into the cockpit panel, the controller allows TBM 940 pilots to access systems features with just a few taps. It creates stabilized approaches and will advance automatically in automatic go around mode. Known for its incredible 1,700+ NM range, excellent short-field performance, Garmin G3000 avionics, 330 KTS cruise speed, and fast climb, the TBM 940 is one of the most pilot-friendly airplanes on the market.
